12  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Breast Cancer Awareness Painted Pumpkins on: October 08, 2009 10:26:19 PM

This pumpkin serves a dual purpose...celebrating Halloween and Breast Cancer Awareness Month!  I think this would make for a great gift or a cute display idea at a Relay for Life-type walk to raise awareness.  They were really super easy to make and you can whip them up in no time at all.  They would also send a message on a front porch stoop that's a little different and inspiring this Halloween season.  Anyway, thought I would share.  I featured this little project on my blog and have a little more info on there... http://swelldesigner.blogspot.com/2009/10/breast-cancer-awareness-pumpkins.html
13  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Dark Shadows Comic Book Photo Frame on: October 08, 2009 10:17:34 PM

I created this simple little frame using decopauge medium and a cut up Dark Shadows comic book.  I love all the imagery in the old comic books.  The expressions and illustrations are just really super campy.  I didn't really have a lot of rhyme or reason when I layed this out...I just kinda layed down images as I went, but you can totally lay the images on top first and then decopauge them.

I then put a super creepy photo of myself in the frame.  I like to play around with artsy photography.  Even if you don't have the best camera in the world...if you take your photo in a photo editing program like Photoshop, you can modify the image and make it look very ghostly and haunting.

Anyway, just wanted to share. If you want more info on this project, click here:


14  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Spooky Halloween Swirl Vase on: October 08, 2009 10:09:47 PM

Here's a quick and easy vase idea that really can be made in 5 minutes!  I simply wrapped a clear vase with orange cardstock and black swirl diecut cardstock that has been spray mounted together.  I think it turned out super cute and it can be made for a prettycenterpiece for a Halloween table.

It would prob.look cool black too!  Just use plain acrylic craft paint.  You could really do any color to do the drips.  A white + black drip pumpkin would be pretty as well as would an white pumpkin with orange drips.  There's a lot of possibilities.
16  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Bloody Pumpkins on: October 05, 2009 11:57:05 PM

I know a lot of people are swaying toward the dark side in their Halloween crafting and for a couple of years now, I've been wanting to make bloody white pumpkins, so I finally did!

For the drippy one, I basically used Tulip 3-D paint in Bright Red and squeezed it on in a drippy fashion along the ridges of the pumpkin. I also covered the stem.

For the fang one, I used a construction nail and dug it into the pumpkin in two spots, then squirted the 3-D paint inside and drug the tip down and created a blob of blood at the bottom of the drip.

It was really fun and super fast!

For more info on this project, you can see this project on my blog: http://swelldesigner.blogspot.com/2009/10/bloody-pumpkins.html

Hee hee. If you only knew.  I'm very good at staging photos is the trick!

I am not very good with measurements, so honestly, I just eyeballed most of it. They are about 1 to 1 1/2 separated from each other. You could probably do a faint pencil marking to line them up though. Since it's just me, I didn't have anyone to help me line up a tape measure, so I just did what I could Smiley

I like the idea of doing this with wallpaper paste.  I think this would be cool if it were more permanant too Smiley

Oh, and I think it would be cool if you did it on a large board or just above the bed for a very visual headboard if you don't want such a dramatic look all over the wall.

Hee hee.  I can't lie.  I kinda staged the photo.  I even bought flowers for the vase and lit some candles.  I wish my place was always this picture perfect Smiley  I need to keep it this way!

I used Zots.  They are little glue dots that go up real easy.  They do remove from the wall, but if you tug at them, they will pull off the dry wall, so you have to be careful (just like you would with tape). If someone has a better adhesive option, let me know.

Also, the lamps are from World Market, but you can get similar ones at Pier One.
